My ankles crack an unbelievable amount, are stiff, and they do ache after level 2. Not so much with level 3, but I skipped a few days, so I think I’m going to go back and re-build a bit.

What circuit is this move in?  For some reason, I’m having trouble seeing it…I’ve only done Level 2 twice, but I haven’t noticed anything with my ankles — but I do sometimes feel like I’m not doing some of the moves correctly (mainly the plyo/plank moves)!

Maybe your ankles are bent too much or twisting in an awkward way when you move your arms…do you notice it in both ankles?

I don’t have anything relevant to contribute, but I just wanted to say that I did level 2 for the first time this afternoon and I thought I was going to DIE! Yeesh, it’s SO hard!

@Lees – Yeah, I thought I’d give it a try today, ’cause I’m on my 5th day, and I had to just stop and lay on the floor a few times! So freaking hard!

I’ve done Level 2 multiple times and never had any ankle issues. Perhaps you’re ankles are just building strength- muscles you’ve never used… Hang in there you’ll be kicking Level 3’s butt in no time! I can now do every level with ease and used to die on Level 1!

@USMCbride – I’m on day 5, and I am definitely seeing my endurance go up. I can do level 1 much easier than I could on day 1! I think it’s probably too early for me to really be seeing results, but I can definitely FEEL them! I’ve been sore for 5 days straight now!

@USMCbride I prob only lost a few pounds and did it pretty consistently for 3 months and now Level 3 about 1-2x/week… However I noticed I was much more toned– especially in my arms, legs and no muffin tops! I have since switched up my workout and include bootcamp classes and pilates sculpt… Whew- I thought Jillian kicks your butt— those are 10x harder than the Shred, but her tape actually prepares you for those pretty well!

Careful on Level 2.  I thought I was going to die the first day after I did it.  I noticed the next day my ankle hurt, but I continued to do the Shred.  Finally after my workout on day 3 of level two I realized it wasn’t my ankle that hurt but my Achilles tendon.  It hurt to walk in flats or barefeet for about 2 weeks, I could walk in heels just fine.  I assume cause I wasn’t stretching the tendon.  

Its better but I am afraid to go back to the shred. I do not know what part of level 2 did it, all I know that is the only thing I was working on that time.

Oh no!  I notice that move is hard for me too!  But I will say that the bruising concerns me!  Why would that cause bruising?!  Could it be the way your sneaker is rubbing up against your ankle?  I actually have hurt my lower back TWICE doing level 2 chair squats and V flys.  I’m not sure what I am doing wrong.  I am noticing toning, but not much weight loss.  Feel better, and be careful!

I gave up on level 2 because it was too hard on my knees and ankles. I haven’t tried level 3 yet (just went back to level 1).
